Important Information provided by the Department of Health and the NHS about your EHIC card
Before you travel: Check that your EHIC is valid for your dates of travel.
Keep your EHIC card in a safe place with your passport. There may be an administration charge for issuing replacement cards.
If you lose your EHIC card, or it is damaged or stolen, see the NHS EHIC information site for a telephone number to call. This will differe depending on whether you are still in the UK or whether you are already travelling.
Please note that the EHIC card does not entitle you to go abroad in order to get treatment, it only covers treatment that you need while you are away.
